Let BlueMax Light Therapy Beat the "Winter Blues" Caused by Shorter Days and Less Sunshine With Healthy, BlueMax Lighting™

Full Spectrum Solutions Dedicated to Helping Consumers Battle Seasonal Affective Disorder

JACKSON, MI--(Marketwire - October 18, 2007) - When daylight savings time ends on the first Sunday in November, shorter days and less daylight will likely result in mild depression or the "winter blues" for millions of Americans. Although any changes in mood triggered by a decrease in sunshine are typically not serious for most, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can disrupt sleep patterns, affect appetite and hinder normal activities. National studies found that 15.2% of college students experienced depression, anxiety or seasonal affective disorders that impacted their academic performance.

What many sufferers of SAD don't know is that studies have shown that it is both preventable and treatable with the regular use of Light Therapy. BlueMax brand light therapy products ( from Full Spectrum Lighting Solutions are particularly effective because they are scientifically proven to provide light that most closely replicates natural daylight. BlueMax Lighting™ aesthetically designed lighting products feature:

--  10,000 Lux at 18" or 5,000 Lux at 28"

"Meter readings of natural sunlight on a sunny day are virtually identical when compared to measurements of light emitted indoors from BlueMax light therapy boxes," said Mike Nevins, founder/CEO of Full Spectrum Solutions. "We offer sufferers of SAD and consumers interested in having the healthiest possible natural light the only High Definition full spectrum lights without UV available today."
